How about taking up the odd slabs, filling the holes with soil/compost and planting some shrubs or flowers in them. Kill the weeds with glyphosate first though.

Hi Lizzie, looks like by trying to better the forum they've made it worse!



Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 06/08/2013 at 21:04

Good evening everybody!

Was just wondering a while back, has anyone heard from Alan19, he hasn't appeared for quite a while, hope he's ok.

Verdun, sounds like you've had quite a downpour in your neck of the woods, hope you haven't been flooded out! It never rains but it pours!

Glad the site is normal again, the techies must have been playing around, settings don't just change by themselves.

Hoping it gets a bit cooler here tomorrow, not much fun gardening in 33C.

Have a good evening everyone.

It's original pot must be getting a bit tight by now. Gently remove it from the pot and see if it's root bound, if so, replant in a bigger pot.

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening everyone, just tried to catch up but so much news can't remember everything.

I can't help wondering what has happened to Brumbull, did send him a PM, but nothing heard. Do hope he's ok. Am reminded of him everytime I see the Good Morning title. Miss him he was such fun.

Hope your Mum will be OK with her operation KEF, she'll be pleased with the result I'm sure.

No gardening here today, too hot, still over 30C in the shade, hoping it will cool down soon, am sick of watering twice a day!

Enjoy your evening, whatever you're doing.

How about Picea abies "Nidiformis", also low/flat growing junipers (google), interspersed with vinca minor, all are evergreen. And a few clumps of daffodils every couple of yards or so.

This could help Alan:

They seem to have a huge range of cherries.

SD, I've tried them. Not my favourites, I have to say. I find the taste a little harsh. The "black" varieties, all mainly from the Crimea region originally, tend to polarise people. They have their fans and their haters. There's usually no half way.

Hi Italophine, always interested in your posts on tomatoes, expecially from someone that lives in "tomato land"! I'll wait and see what the Russians are like, if I don't like them, I'll go back to my tried and trusted Spanish ones, can't remember the names just now, but they taste great even when still a little green, to remind me of long past holidays in France and Spain (salad niçoise et al)!

I have planted "black" tomatoes this year, including Black Russian. They are very strong and vigorous plants, but not many trusses per plant and are also still green. Will be interested to see what they are like once ripe.
